The chiefs and good people Sewhi Akontombra in the Wioso municipality of the newly created Western North region, have in a splendid fashion, endorsed and pledged unwavering support to the second term bid of President Akufo-Addo.
Speaking for and on behalf of the chiefs and people of Akontombra and surrounding townships, Nana Kwabena Ebie II, the Akontombra manhene, said, “President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has proved himself an honest and trustworthy leader and so his reward is not only in heaven, but that, all the chiefs and their subjects will unite to reward him (Akufo-Addo) and his government with the thumb during the December, 2020 polls”.
The chiefs and people of Akontombra and its catchment towns; Bokaso, Nsawora, Edumefua, Kofikrom, Ackaakrom, Yawkrom, Aprutu and etc., who defied the heavy rains, biting cold and intermittent power outages, chanted and sung for well over five hours until President Akufo-Addo gingerly mounted the wet platform to take the national salute and address the charged gathering.
The visibly elated President, clad in his trademark African print, danced to the ever-rich melodies of “Asempa pa bi a mate, oye oye.” before addressing the gathering. The chiefs and people who could just not hold back their delight, kept shouting in unison, FOUR MORE FOR NANA, FOUR MORE FOR TETTEH! (The sitting NPP MP for the Sewhi Wioso constituency).
President Akufo-Addo responded to the address by the chiefs and promised to hold discussions with his ministers on the various requests made, especially on the need for a nursing training school in Akontombra.
The gathering, most of whom are in various levels of the Cocoa production chain, went into wild jubilations when honorable Boahen Aidoo, CEO of COCOBOD and a native of the land, announced the price increase for a bag of cocoa, from Ghc515.63 to Ghc660.00 per cocoa bag. They quickly resumed the chorus of, FOUR MORE FOR NANA, FOUR MORE FOR TETTEH.
The President was blessed with two fattened white sheep and a beautifully weaved kente cloth in appreciation of his sincerity to the people of Akontombra and Ghana over the past four years.
And so, it was, on Thursday 24th September, 2020, even as the rains poured down, Akontombra poured out to endorse the second term bid of an honest and visionary President, Akufo-Addo.
